Collection Descriptive Notes:
Native speakers from Veracruz State relate their life stories, narrate folktales and other stories, and recite word-lists. The locales represented are: Chinampa, San Antonio, Tamaletón, Tampemoch, Tancanhuitz, Tancoco, Tantocoy and Zacamixtle. Note: In McQuown's usage "text" or "texto" refers to a discrete passage of spoken language. Note also: Although Andrade is credited with making this series, a woman's voice is heard on the first two tapes (and?).
Collection Technical Notes:
Phonograph records are 31 aluminum discs, all belonging to the "Fairchild Professional Record" brand ("Licensed by Kemsen Corp."). (It is not known why there is no Disc No. 31, but at the same time a Disc No. 32.) Note: Sides "A" and "B" are determined by the embossed label in the middle of each disc, Side A being the one with the raised embossing. Also note: In the 1950s a complete set of tape dubs was made from the discs (see ID #4608). (Unreviewed) WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
